Whoopi Goldberg (stage name) was back on The Views Monday, a day earlier than her 2-week suspension suggested. She was suspended after making anti-Semitic comments claiming the “Holocaust isn't about race” (which NewsBusters was the first to report). But according to her boastful returning message to viewers, they were going to continue to have the “tough conversations.”
“Well, hello, hello, hello, and welcome to The View. And yes, I am back,” she boasted at the top of the show. Her return came a day early, having been suspended on a Tuesday but returning on a Monday.
Seemingly trying to squash rumors that she was angry after the original offending incident and thought Whoopi wouldn’t be able to recover, co-host Joy Behar immediately jumped in to announce that they all “missed” her.
